The Berlin Major, scheduled to begin on April 27th and conclude on May 7th, not only features a $500K USD prize pool but also provides teams with the opportunity to claim the largest share of the 2700 DPC points available to boost their TI12 qualification hopes.
With the Berlin Major just around the corner, let’s take a closer look at all the teams that have fought their way to the competition.
Which Teams Are Playing At The Berlin Major 2023?
The Berlin Major, just like the Lima Major, will see 18 top-performing Dota 2 teams from various regions battle it out for the title. The top four teams from Western Europe and China, the top three from Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe, and two each from North and South America will compete, with only the top six advancing to the live stage at the 12,000-seater Velodrom Arena.
Talon Esports and Team SMG were the first to secure their places in the upcoming tournament after impressive showings in the DPC SEA 2023 Tour 2: Division I. While Talon Esports is a seasoned favorite in the region, this will be Team SMG's first-ever appearance in a Dota 2 Major.
